This line also encompasses our own professional skills and how we are perceived by others in regard to the work context. The fate line is also associated with reaching our own destiny in life. Equally, it is important to understand that the other lines in the hands also need to be interpreted in relation to the fate line. One must consider not only the heart, life, and headlines but the shape of the fingers in order to understand the significance of the fate line.

For some people the fate line is somewhat difficult to find, it can often lead to confusion with other lines on the hand. Some people do not have a fate line at all. The fate line is associated with a major line on one's hand and palmistry.

The money line in palmistry 

As a fate line is connected to our work life we can often see if we are going to be wealthy based on the fate line. There are certain signs on this line that can determine if the person is going to be rich or poor. The main indicator of wealth on the fate line is an X. If this mark is present then it can indicate that something will likely happen suddenly. It is sometimes difficult to differentiate between an X and a star on the fate line.

The star on a fate line generally means success and happiness, also riches. If however the fate line is broken in any way then this can indicate that there is going to be an accident or problem whereby the person is unable to continue working. It could simply be that a person will walk out of a job or move on in life. The fate line can also give us some indication of how our money will be achieved in life. If a person has an island on the fate line this can represent a possible loss of money and businesses that fail. Generally, the island found on the fate line can suggest delay problems in the job.

What are fate line branches? 

There are many different types of branches that we can find on the fate line. If you notice that there are many different lines sending upwards from the freight line and this is a positive trait, it suggests that there is going to be an achievement in Korea and also money. The actual little lines that shoot upwards indicate successes and great earning power in the future. There is an issue that this person may not have the time in order to focus on themselves. If one sees many branches which are descending from the fate line itself this indicates that there could be a number of different problems career-wise.

What does a broken fate line mean? 

Breaks seen in the fate line or any other markings including breaks is quite significant. A broken fate line can often show problems and changes in a work context. It is important to try to assess where this break happened in order to bring along timelines. If you notice many different diagonal bars on the fate line then this can suggest that there will be problems and setbacks work context, especially if these lines also come across to the Lifeline headline.

The fate line runs upwards, in between the life line and headline. There are numerous places that this line can finish, this might begin in the wrist and diminish at Jupiter's finger, or even possible it might not appear until midway almost in the hand's palm. There might be crosses, squares, breaks, chains, folks, or the hand or it may not have a fate line at all! For people who have a centrally located fate line, this suggests that they are driven by one profession and are balanced between protection of assets and also self-fulfillment.

Observe carefully the headline in this case (Line E) to see if there are any islands that can make the subject feel confused about their life path. An absent fate line means the subject will have freedom. The problem is that at times they will tend to feel unbalanced and discontented. People tend to be happier when they have a clear fate line. The most crucial part of the reading is where the line starts. The Fate Line can begin from the middle of the palm or even from the Luna area (at the bottom of the palm below the little finger) and if this is the case it means the subconscious mind is strong. If the fate line appears on the right hand then this shows the subject has the ability to achieve goals in life, and their effort in life is normally strong. If the fate line is only on the left-hand only, the fate line is on the right-hand only then there may be work that the subject must achieve in connection with his or her career. 

Late developer

Frequently this line doesn’t develop until later in people's life. When the line appears on the palm during the middle of your life, this always coincides with a person "understanding themselves’ this is a period when they experience a feeling of balance and are much clearer about who they really are and what they need to complete in life. Timing is marked on this line. The stage where it crosses the heart line it coincides with age 35. Where it crosses one's head line it coincides as we grow older it is connected to age 57. For the line to be split means that someone is likely to embark on a different career.

Length and Ending Of The Fate Line

There's no ‘typical’ size or finish to the fate line. Some lines don’t start before the middle of the hand. Some lines can begin at the wrist but complete on the headline. Some carry on beyond the heart line up to one of the mounts. When the fate line intersects with your head line this is approximately when you reach thirty-five.

Many palmists associate this ending with having a family, or a new career, close to the age of thirty-five; this is when people forget about being motivated simply by money. They may proceed with trying to find fulfillment, 'drive', or fascination with their job. Frequently this hand will be looked upon differently between males or females, who modify their particular focus in order to raise their loved children. Given that the location where the fate line intersects the heart line fits approximately at age 57 - 65. This means that at that time the person will be looking to retire. If the line stops at the head line this is associated with a relaxing retirement. Specific markings on the fate line reveal certain events that occurred in your lifetime. The fate line can be into three elements to aid the determination of certain activities taking place or that might occur.

If the line of fate begins at the head line, a blessed business venture may increase your standard of living. This also means that you have been given an excellent education, and you’re sure to be successful in business, love, attention, and in the community. Alternatively, you may put back into society or simply help out your family members or succeed in an early marriage. A fate line that starts on the opposite bottom of the palm (under the ring or little finger) shows a person who has chosen a gratifying career.  This is also the starting point for those who make a career that deals with people or the public.  It is not unusual to see a fate line begin in the vicinity of the life line but then be joined by a new branch rising up from the opposite side of the palm.  This shows that initially the person started work based on outside advice, but then they found more fulfilling work as they became more self-motivated. If your fate line commences inside the life line curve (which is curve around the thumb) means you will observe a career change that will greatly affect a loved one. This also means that you are family focused. You ask for assistance and approval from your family member.  Usually, people who show that the fate line begins on the lifeline curve owe their destiny of work to a family member. Maybe the owner has worked ‘in the family businesses or chosen an identical career as a parent or perhaps a family member.

Elements on the fate line

  • Dots and chains: these on your fate line imply that you will experience worry at work. The actual point should be noted. It is important to recognize that there may be a surprise even if you notice a single dot on this line.
  • Triangles: the career that you choose will be associated with psychic pursuits, such as a clairvoyant. A triangular is not a bad sign or this indicates that you will strive to obtain things in your life.
  • Squares: the square on the hand generally appears on natural teachers. These people have the talent to motivate other people. 
  • Crosses: a cross that appears on the fate line shows you will have to overcome obstacles or blockages that will hold you back from achieving your main goals in life. This is a barrier to your true destiny.
  • Tassels: not typically seen on the hand; can represent scattered energies or un-manifested ideas.
  • Grilles: represent lots of starting and stopping with respect to life's endeavors.
  • Stars: to have a star on your fate line means you will be famous.
  • Circle on the fate line: a circle is a great sign on the mounts, as this suggests success at work, if found on the line marking out the circle then it foretells trouble.
  • The point where the Fate line crosses over the head line represents your career in your mid-30s and the crossing point of the heart line is around 55 years of age.
  • Lines that start at the head or heart line indicate success in later years, after the corresponding age.
  • People that have a broken, barely-there or faint line can expect many changes within the scope of finance and career.
  • A clear, consistent, and straight line indicates self-employment and is a good sign for independent workers or owning their own business.
  • A shallow line represents working too hard or being underappreciated.

The Fate line controls the timing of one’s fortune. It is the line that goes straight down your palm, usually resting at the base of your middle finger. This vertical line should not be confused with the main lines of your hand and is an additional line that often crosses over other the two prominent horizontal lines on your hand. This line dictates the presence of a career, how successful one will be and the timing of your career.

Note: Many people do not have a fate line, which can be taken that you are unlikely to have a permanent job or career. You likely will not find enough interest in doing one thing or will change jobs so frequently that you will not have enough time present within a career to establish the basis of this line.

If your fate line is strong and long this means that you are a strong character, inflexible about how to achieve things in life, they know who they are and what they need to get from life. They tend to be complicated, self-protective with a feeling that people are against them.

Keep in mind that having this line doesn’t mean that you will not have a career. This simply means you haven’t defined your own personal goals in life or thought about what you want from your own existence. An obvious strong fate line doesn’t constantly mean that you will embark on a fantastic profession either. It means that as a person you will create your own unique terms in your own way.
